This article will start with the terminology that should be studied as well as the growing requirements.
Marijuana has many growth requirements:
- The proper soil. This takes a lot of research as marijuana plants can be “fussy” about the amounts of nutrients and minerals needed in soil. The correct amounts must be followed to the letter. If necessary, it will be wise to ask other growers in the area about this, as marijuana is considered farming and marijuana farmers will exist.
- The best lighting. Marijuana is a plant and sufficient light is needed whether indoor or outdoor growing is done. Again, research like crazy!
- The correct amount of heat. Crops of any type and marijuana are a crop fail from draught, in overly hot conditions and from cold in frigid conditions. Check out the area in which you are considering planting marijuana.
- The types of marijuana. Although there are over 1000 varieties listed, only three main varieties are generally grown and sold for the best profits. Study the three main varieties whether starting a large or small marijuana business.
Now for the terminology used:
This is an important aspect as many times joint ventures occur and no partnerships will develop with an unknowledgeable “newbie.” There are many names for marijuana, some as old as the hills and others just coming into play in the last decade. Some are more common and only the common ones will be listed as there are hundreds of terms. These are:
- Pot. One of the first terms and the most common.
- MJ. A more recent term. Some individuals use it, but it was trendy and now seems to be fading.
- Cannabis (the truly technical name) and one that businesses use most commonly.
- “J” a totally slang term used sometimes.
- Weed. Marijuana is a weed, and this is a popular term. You will hear this one a lot.
The term used for marijuana business ideas is usually “420”. Now what does that mean exactly?
This term originated as a cultural norm in some areas where others gathered at 4:20 PM (no matter what the time zone) to smoke together as a group.

Recreational users do not use this term as much as business owners, but we will use it here as this article is going to suggest 10 profitable Marijuana dispensary ideas that can generate revenue.
